USDCAD: Buyers Aim to Challenge Parity Again
USDCAD pushed higher as expected after putting in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern above support at 0.9854, the March 1 bottom, taking out resistance at the underside of a falling channel set from early June. Buyers now aim to challenge the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 0.9983, a barrier reinforced by the psychologically significant parity level. A break above this juncture targets the 38.2% Fib at 1.0071. Channel support is now at 0.9901, with push back below that exposing 0.9854 anew. Risk/reward considerations argue against entering a trade at current levels and we will stand aside for now.
